We got started around 10:30 AM, just after the thick morning fog had cleared. Avi hooked a pike on his first cast. The pike went straight into the weeds. After horsing it out, we noticed that it had completely swallowed his square billed crankbait. Avi didn't have a leader tied on, but we managed to land the pike. It cut the line as soon as I got it on shore. The pike was already bleeding badly before we landed it, but I managed to get the hooks out without much more damage.
Didn't take long for Eli to catch his first bass of the day on a spinnerbait:
The spinnerbait proved to be the hot lure, Eli caught a good 15 more bass or so, up to about 1.5 lbs. Not too shabby for a 6 year old.
Chaya joined in on the action using worms to catch panfish, she managed to catch a nice bluegill sunfish hile Eli was fighting one of his bass. Gotta love double headers...
She eventually caught her first bass on a worm as well, but refused to take a picture with it for some reason. I guess she got a bit camera shy.
Final tally for the days was about 20 largemouth bass, 15-20 bluegill and perch, 1 pike, and 3 very happy kids!
